Dental sealants, if placed properly can protect a tooth from bacteria getting stuck in deep pits and fissures, preventing decay. Our practice places many sealants, on the healthy teeth of kids and adults, preventing pit and fissure decay. In seeing numerous patients with sealants placed improperly or by using weak sealant materials, sealants can create caves and nooks where food and or bacteria can hide. Have your sealants checked each time you visit us, and if they need to be removed and redone, we can take a digital picture and let you know.
